conditions rather thafijiuP'ket require
ments. The lard- type prevails in sec
tions where corn is used as the prin
cipal feed, and the bacon typo is gen
erally found on farms where the hogi
require a variety of feeds.
The lard type of hogs is one whici
has o compact, thick, deep, smooth
body and is capable of fattening rap
idly and maturing early. The hams
back, .and shoulders are the most val
uable parts and should be develope<
to the greatest possible extent. The
whole body of the animal should b<
covered with a thick layer of flesh rep
resenting the extreme development of
meat production. This type of hog, un
der good conditions, should weigh 20(
pounds or more when seven to nine
months of age. This is the most pop
ular market weight. Due to the facts
that corn is the most abundant hop
feed and lard hogs mature very early
this type predominates.
The most popular breeds of the lart
type are the Berkshire, the Poland
Ohina, the Duroc-Jersey, the Chestei
White, and the Hampshire.
The Berkshire had its origin in Eng.
land and takes its name from a shirt
or county by that name. The color is
black with white markings in the face
on the feet, and on the tip of the tail
The face is moderately dished and the
shout is of medium length. The ears
are usually erect, though they may in
cline forward in aged animals.
The Poland-China originated in But,
ier and Warren counties, Ohio. The
breed takes its name from the tw<
breeds from the crossing of which il
la supposed to have resulted, namely
a Poland breed and a Chinese breed
The color is black with white on feet
face, and tail. The face is nearly
straight and the jowl is full and heavy
The Duroc-Jersey had its origin it
the blending of two red breeds, the
Jersey Reds of New Jersey and th
Durocs of New Yerk, The color I:
cherry or yellowish red. The face i:
slightly dished, the snout is of mediun
length, and the ear is drooped.
The original Chester White had it

The bacon type di1ffnrR from the lard

and do not carry as much fat as the
latter. Their bodies are longer than

Main Sources of ' Noughage for
Pows and Yourg Stock.
P(rel tred by the Unite& States Depart
-- ment of Agriculture.)
While' corn stover and straw from
the varous cereals are not adapted
k for plrducing the largest fbw of milk,
they may be fed to dairy tattle. The
amount to uase of these materials will i
depend, of course, upon the apply at
hand on the farm. When an abidilance
of corn stover is available it should
form. one of the main sources of dry
roughage for dry cows, youug stock,
and cows in milk. To use stover eco
nomically it should be cut or shredded,
for then it will be caten more com
pletely andl there will lby less waste.
Corn stover may bq fed to milking
cows without' limit, then they receive
in addition grain, silage, and some
leguninous hay. Under these condi
tions the ordinary cow will eat a large
part of from 6 to 8 pounds of stover
daily. For dry cows and young stock
the proportion can be greatly in
creesecd, care being taken to be sure
that there Is plenty of protein in the
ration. In certain instances corn stov
er has been cut and put into the silo
with the addition of plenty of water,
and the resulting silage is of fair qual
ity. If a silo is available, empty or
partly so, corn fodder which has been
well shocked and is not severely
weathered may be ensiled to advan
tage. Put up in this form it is more
convenient for feeding in the barn,
and cows will consume more of it than
If fed dry.
Oat, barley, and wheat straw can
form a considerable portion of the
dry roughage for all classes of dairy
cattle. Straw is used in much the
sanle proportions as corn stover, and
a sprinkling of thin molasses has been
found to increase greatly the palata
bility, causing the cows to consume
large quantities of the straw. When
feeding harley straw it is advisable to
examine the mouths of the cattle oc
easionally, as the beards of the bar
ley when very dry and stiff sometimes
cause painful irritations. Rye straw

tie, hecause of danger from ergot and

HELP CONTROL OF DISEASES

IA dairyman should report any con

his farm to the health authorities and
in this way assist ilt the control of the

should be permitted to work with the
